When I wake up on a work day, most likely in semi-zombie mode, the last thing I want to have to worry about is finding a way to have a nutritious breakfast. Can anyone relate?!
Normally my go-to is Shakeology, a superfood meal-replacement shake. BUT this past week I started the Whole 30, where Shakeology is out of bounds. (It contains natural sweetener which is a no-no). So instead of making myself a hearty breakfast each morning, I decided to mass produce these mini frittatas so I can grab a couple, heat them up, and get lots of nutrition without much thought.
These little guys are delicious, even if you’re not doing the Whole 30. They are packed with protein and nutrients and come in at about 100-110 calories each. And the best part? They are incredibly versatile. You can use whatever you have on hand. I love recipes that allow me to get creative!
Oh, and did I mention that my husband loves them too? I love sneaking greens into his meals whenever possible, and I’m guessing these could be a great way to get some veggies in for your kiddos as well.
Below is a basic outline of how we’ve loved making our mini frittatas, but like I said, get creative! Comment below if you think of any other delicious ingredients that could be added!
Whole 30 Approved Mini Frittatas
- 10 large eggs
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Pepper
- 1 Tbsp Garlic Seasoning (I used Flavor God’s Garlic Lovers)
- All-Natural breakfast meat, chopped (we’ve used 7 chicken sausage links or 7 pieces of cooked bacon)
- 1 Cup All-Natural Frozen Shredded Hashbrowns
- 1 Cup of Spinach,chopped
- 1/2 Red Onion, chopped
- 2-3 Tomatoes, thinly sliced into 12 rounds
- Preheat oven to 375. Cook breakfast meat until desired texture.
- Spray a muffin tin with cooking oil. Fill tins evenly with hasbrowns, spinach, onion, and meat.
- Whisk the eggs, salt, pepper, and garlic seasoning in a large bowl until well mixed. Pour evenly into muffin tins. I found this to be easier by using a 1/3 measuring cup as a spoon.
- Place a tomato slice on top of each frittata.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they reach the consistency you desire.
How easy is that?! I love eating mine with hot sauce or salsa, and I also think avocado would go great on top. Let me know what you think when you give them a try! 🙂
